“These symbolic images of people of color in advertising were designed to trigger stereotypical thoughts in the minds of readers, viewers and listeners that promoted purchase of the products being advertised.” (Racism, Sexism and the Media by Wilson II, Gutierrez and Chao pg.163) #Stereotypes #Advertising #Remembrance #peopleofcolorintegration #vargas


One thought on “Week 4 Race in Advertising

  1. I think this a great image that shows the development of advertising. It perfectly shows the intentional use of blackface to illustrate African-Americans as inferior.
